There are a variety of unique cafes in Japan with an animal theme, from cat cafes, to owl and reptile cafes, and a new addition to this trend is growing in popularity, drawing people from all over the world to its doors. “HARRY” is the first of its kind in Tokyo, where hedgehogs are served as main attraction and charm visitors with their cuteness. Located in the Roppongi entertainment district, the name is a play on the Japanese word for hedgehog.

At this cafe, you can touch, feed, and even buy these adorably fluffy animals. Each customer has their own reasons for visiting. Some come to relieve stress and some come to see what it is like to play with a hedgehog before they buy one. The spines freak some people out, but the staff is there to explain how to properly communicate with the animals so as not to frighten them. The way the hedgehogs move and roll up into little balls is so cute that anyone finding themselves stressed out in the big city is sure to smile when they see them.

The cafe is home to twenty to thirty friendly hedgehogs of different breeds that you can spend time with and even take home. All available hedgehog breeds available for purchase are listed on a chalk-written blackboard. So if customers find it hard to part with the adorable rodents once their hour is up, they have the option to give them a home.
